Men's Basketball Busts Bowling Green, 83-72, in ESPN Bracket Buster|
Feb. 22, 2003
Chicago, Ill. - Senior guard Jonathan Schneiderman tallied a season-high 19 points, and tied a season-high with five treys, to help propel the University of Illinois at Chicago men's basketball team to the 83-72 victory over Bowling Green in the ESPN Bracket Buster at the UIC Pavilion on Saturday afternoon.
With the victory, UIC improves to 17-7 on the season, while Bowling Green falls to 10-13 on the campaign.
UIC was stingy with the ball and turned in some stingy defense on Bowling Green as the Flames tied a team-season low with six turnovers and forced 20 Falcons' turnovers. The Flames capitalized on the Bowling Green miscues and scored 19 points.
Bowling Green forward John Reimold scored a game-high 22 points for the Falcons, including six three-pointers. Kevin Netter posted 18 points for BGSU, while Ronald Lewis and Raheem Moss each posted 11 points apiece for the Falcons.
UIC will be back in action on Thursday evening, as they will travel to Rogers Park to square off with Horizon League rival, Loyola, at 7:00 p.m. at the Gentile Center.
